Uranium Market Bottoming Five Years After Fukushima as World Heats Up From Carbon Emissions

We should invest in this forgotten sector when it is dirt cheap and in the midst of a bust as the long term forecast for nuclear is very strong. Climate change and global warming concerns will not go away and I believe America will continue to build and update its nuclear fleet over the next 5-10 years. Investors may wise up to this soon that nuclear is not on its way out, but waiting for a new beginning. The next nuclear renaissance will be with next generation small modular reactors in the battle to fight climate change.

Investment Banks Excited Over Future of Electric Vehicles Using Lithium Ion Batteries

Important developments are taking place in the lithium ion battery sector. For years we highlighted lithium as the new gasoline. I highlighted in this article entitled “Lithium-Ion Batteries becoming the fuel of the future” written over two years ago that demand could soar for electric vehicles. Now two years later even the big player investment banks like Goldman Sachs are finally entering the sector.

Could This Be the Start of an Early Bull Market in Precious Metals and Commodities?

This could be a major turning point and transition from a historic bear market in the junior miners to what could be the beginning of a breathtaking move in precious metals, commodities and the junior miners. Looking at the returns year to date, silver is in first place followed by gold, platinum and oil. Smart contrarian investors have been accumulation precious metals and commodities at once in a generation price levels. The worse things got in 2015, the better they became in 2016.

Chinese Need Fission’s Canadian Uranium on Western Side of Athabasca Basin

"The western side of the Athabasca Basin region is prolific and is a new emerging important uranium camp. There’s already a provincially-maintained highway in the west (which runs through the middle of PLS and Fission 3.0’s PLN and Clearwater West properties)...If the West Side Story continues to develop at this rate, the best really could end up being in the west."

Jeb Handwerger: “Early innings of a great lithium-ion battery boom”

Don't buy things that are trending on Twitter or the front page of USA Today, warns Gold Stock Trades publisher Jeb Handwerger. Buy them when they are unloved and on the back page. In this interview with The Energy Report, he singles out the unloved companies that could become media darlings in the coming boom in energy metals, uranium and—eventually—oil sectors. And he stresses the importance of the single most important commodity in the investing space ever—time.

Junior Uranium Mining Breakout in Second Half of 2015?

The big story over the second half of 2015 could be the junior uranium mining breakout, which I expected could be accelerated by moves from emerging economies such as China and India. The recent deal between Canada's Cameco and India could be the catalyst as highlighted in my previous article. I was quoted in Marketwatch and The Daily Reckoning stating my beliefs that large gains could be made in the nuclear energy sector. Keep an eye on this junior which may just be breaking out.

Where Is Tesla Going To Get The Lithium and Graphite for The “Gigafactory”?

Lithium Ion batteries aren't just for cars and mobile computing. For months, I highlighted the growing use of lithium-ion batteries for energy storage solutions. Tesla Motors (TSLA) known for making top notch electric cars is making a major move into building battery systems aimed at residences, commercial buildings and for power companies.These batteries could provide the answer for intermittent energy sources like sun or wind which is dependent on the weather. Solar or wind is great but what happens when the sun goes down or the wind isn't blowing. Tesla believes they can provide the solution through rechargeable lithium ion batteries that can be placed in homes or businesses storing energy and providing stability for intermittent renewable sources. Tesla has spent millions of dollars in battery research for their electric cars, now management believes that they can use that technology outside of the automobile sector. So where does the real opportunity lie? The real question is where will the raw material needed for these Tesla batteries come from? Does Tesla have any off-take arrangements yet?

Emerging Economies Building Next Generation Nuclear Reactors For the 21st Century at Record Pace

Uranium prices have climbed by roughly 35% since last summer. The weekly price of uranium stood at $38.85 a pound as of Monday, compared with $28 as of June 23, according to data from nuclear-fuel consultancy Ux Consulting Company LLC... Indeed, the world seems to be warming back up to the use of nuclear energy. Japan was using 50-year-old reactors while China, India and Russia are building next generation nuclear reactors, which are much safer than the first generation dinosaurs of the past.
